Man With Airgun Triggers Campus Closure


WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) The man who carried an air gun on the campus of Carroll University and triggered a lockdown has been released and cited for disorderly conduct. The college sent text alerts and emails to students to stay inside school buildings Tuesday after at least two people reported seeing a man with a gun on campus. Several Waukesha public schools in the area also kept students inside.

Waukesha Police Capt. Ron Oremus said Wednesday the man found the non-lethal weapon in the garbage and was carrying it back to his apartment when he was spotted on campus. Oremus says police believe the man had no ill intent, but the citation was issued because his actions caused ``a stir.''

Heavily-armed officers approached the man's apartment complex with guns drawn and arrested him.
